Mrs Jhonstone has got 7 children and another 2 on the way. Mrs Lyons can't have children so Mrs Jhonstone sells one of her babies she is having so that both mother can be happy, because Mrs Jhonstone is all ready getting threaded with the welther officer. A quite from the play "I could manage with one more but not two."
